Michael Brook Martin - My Stay at the Lark Ellen Home for Boys

My name is Michael Brook Martin. I lived at Lark Ellen between the late 1960s and early 1970s.

I was at Lark Ellen in the late 60's to early 70's and have many stories about Pop and Ms. Vasquez my house mother and the Beach Boys, when they were not popular they played in the cafeteria for us. And the boxing on the front lawn and many other memories. I was athlete of the year and I also still have many swim medals from then. Michael Brook Martin was my name at the time. As I was adopted by a fellow named Brook prior to this. Also I was in Guys and Dolls a benefit show that was a good production and I remember many boys names from this era.
